Lyle's PubPub in Grinnell, Iowa
As many of you have already heard, Lyle's Pub will be shut down this year. We are frustrated with this decision, how it was made, and how the Administration has treated our managers and staff in the process.
While we're really excited about Bob's reopening for events this year, Lyle's is also an important space with a lot to offer. We don't see the Administration's concerns about liability with our liquor license as a particularly strong reason to not allow us to open for ev...ents like Pub Quiz, minus the food and alcohol, this semester.
We'd like to be able to reopen for special events and continue to work with the Administration to make Lyle's a safer, more exciting, and more financially-solvent place. Please read this letter we wrote to the Administration detailing why we think this is feasible.
tl;dr: we love you and are sad the pub is shut down this year
